Ocean gate co-founder now wants to build a colony on Venus, Twitter told him to sit down
After the tragic spectacle that was Titangate, now the new co-founder of Ocean Gate Expeditions, Guillermo Söhnlein, has announced a proposal to take 10,000 people on a floating colony to Venus by 2050. Keeping in mind that Venus, also known as “The Morning Star”, is the planet with the warmest atmosphere with a surface hot enough to melt lead.
The company has previously been slammed online for the Titan submersible which imploded during a journey to the wreck of the Titanic, killing all five occupants on the board, including the co-founder Stockton Rush.
When the news went viral on social media, Twitter couldn’t hold back the roasts because seriously after one catastrophe, you can’t seem to sit down?

Every supposed genius who wants to colonize another planet is a grifter taking advantage of the climate crisis for their own profit. This planet isn’t beyond saving, no matter what the people who benefit from destroying it want you to think. https://t.co/QKLCxMtfso

This is probably the funniest idea you could have following national media coverage of your company killing several people through gross incompetence https://t.co/uG3tosk769
